Description

msxDS is a MSX/MSX2/MSX2+ emulator for the Nintendo DS

msxDS is based on fmsxDS v.0.07 from Nyagosu but since then several bugfixes and improvements have been added. For example, MSX-Music and MSX2+ scrolling work.

Downloads

Setup instructions

  • Unzip the archive and copy fmsxDS.nds to any directory on your flash cart.
  • Copy the /msxds folder that contains CMOS.ROM and Carts.crc to the root directory of your flash cart.
  • Copy MSX/MSX2/MSX2+ japanese BIOS, FM-PAC BIOS and Kanji ROM into this folder. That is the following files:
    • MSX.ROM = MSX BIOS and BASIC
    • MSX2.ROM = MSX2 BIOS and BASIC
    • MSX2EXT.ROM = MSX2 ExtROM
    • MSX2P.ROM = MSX2+ BIOS and BASIC
    • MSX2PEXT.ROM = MSX2+ ExtROM
    • DISK.ROM = DiskROM and BDOS
    • FMPAC.ROM = FMPAC BIOS
    • KANJI.ROM = KANJI ROM (JIS 1st+2nd Class)
    • A1WXKDR.ROM = Kanji Basic from FS-A1WSX
    • CMOS.ROM = To save parameters of the MSX

Screenshots

This homebrew has only been verified to work in DS mode. It may not be compatible with the newer DSi mode.

Titen96, have you had a chance to test this on your CycloDS?

This doesn't seem to work for me. I got all those BIOS files it wanted (didn't actually check CRC's though) and stuck them in the folder like they said. I can choose a game and it goes back to the menu and says the game is selected, but when I hit the power button on the menu (to run the game, presumably), it brings up the keyboard display and appears to lock up. I have never seen anything displayed in the top screen with this program yet.

Is there some kind of file limit on the amount of games you can have in the folder or something? I whittled it down from over 700 games to less than 250, nothing. I tried running the msxDS.nds file both clean and DLDI patched, but it didn't make any difference (CycloDS auto-DLDI patches anyway). Initially, I had the msxDS.nds file in a folder, but I also tried putting it in the root of the SD, no difference. Is there a certain method to booting games on it and I'm just doing it wrong or something or what?

Basically, no matter what I do, the last line of the message in the bottom of the touchscreen says "LoadROM Start" (it scrolled a bunch of other stuff first though: Load CMOS.ROM, buncha other stuff, etc.) and then it just sits there….I can't soft reset the Cyclo, no reactions to anything on the screen, top-screen remains blank, just frozen until I turn it off.

Maybe I should try it in my old R4? Does Wood Firmware auto-DLDI patch homebrew?

EDIT: OK, got it working…..apparently I had a bad kanjidrv.rom file. Once I replaced that, everything started working. Seems to run very well too.

Okay, I'll mark this one as verified then. Thanks for testing it out.

Any modifications you'd suggest for the instructions? Do they explain well enough how to set it up?
